Black Mountain Sparkling 2018
Dry, savoury and delicious, with a subtle sweetness that's worth the wait.
We ate with: Sea salt chips
We listened to: The sound of the ocean
Methode tradtionelle of pinot noir from ‘the highest vineyard in the country’ (1306 metres above sea level). A light blush, a kiss of salmon pink, and opens with rosé water, sour cherry, alpine herb scents. Pretty as. The palate has a curious but very good savoury, game meat element, some good oxidative, nutty-saline character, a kiss of cherry-berry fruitiness, but barely there, and a zing of very perky acidity coupled to vigorous and very tight, little bubbles. It’s flavoursome, complex enough and highly drinkable. It’s a cracking wine and drinks absolutely a treat. - 92 points, Mike Bennie, Winefront.
